What he said. You definitely need a clip but it only needs to hold with enough force to pull the expanding part of the CV apart so if it doesn't tap in with a reasonable amount of force replace the snap ring and try again.

From my experience, if ring won't go in with three taps of a 3# hammer I take off the snap ring and test the fit without, then I'll swap the used ring on (because it's a known entity).
